I want to hunt with this gun.
Other scattergun is a Browning Gold.

I usually don't reply when it comes to gun choices but, that is a hard choice, I have only shouldered both and they both feel nice to me, both look great, and almost the same action. The only thing that I don't like about the ethos is the flat rib but then they thought of that also and make other ribs (higher) at your cost though. The ethos is on MY to buy list but I have been a benelli man for awhile.

I'm not a Benelli fan, but the Ethos might make me change my mind. I'd certainly choose it over the A5.
That said, I think your Gold is a much more suitable duck gun than the Ethos. Now, a pheasant gun? The Ethos would be sweet....

I agree with bucsfan in that my A5 is my go-to duck gun because I don't worry about nice wood and beautifully finished metal to ding & scratch. I have several guns for bird hunting that I love to shoot but the Ethos does look like a promising piece...especially if they'd come out with a 20 gauge version.

I would hold off on the ethos for a couple years just to make sure the price goes down a little and make sure they got all the bugs out

I would hold off on both to be honest. The A5 and the Ethos are both very new. The A5 has some well documented bugs. The Ethos is a brand new shotgun. I'd be a little nervous about both. It sounds like you're looking for a gun that could be used in the field as well. I'd recommend an SX3 or a M2/Montefeltro, these are both proven guns that are very reliable.

I wouldn't hold off on getting a new Ethos that gun has more research and development than most guns ever made.If I didn't drop a butt load on my new 28 ga I would own one but I will have to wait for a few months

For me the Ethos has a FUGLY trigger guard. And I am a A5 fan.
However the new A5 is going through some bugs right now, seriously hold off on buying one for another year or two.
